Note: Part of the elements of this page are from a photo hosting site and may take a few minutes to load. ~~Creating A Recipe~~ Entrants must develop an original recipe using a minimum of 5 of the 20 Official Contest Ingredients posted here. You may use any other ingredients, however the 5 ingredients you use from the Official Contest List should be an essential or basic ingredient of the recipe, that is leaving one of the five items out would significantly change the outcome of the recipe. Recipes must be the original creation of the poster, and must be created specifically for this contest. Previously published recipes are not eligible (including but not limited to recipes already posted on Recipezaar). It is a contest after all. ~~Entering Your Recipe~~ Each recipe submission must fit the contest rules & there is a maximum of 3 recipes that any one chef may enter. To submit a recipe, copy the following email address and send your recipe by Email with your Recipezaar member name & chef number in the subject line. Send your recipe to firstname.lastname@example.org (zaar underscore entry @yahoo.com). Only recipes submitted using this link will be eligible for the contest. NOTE: You will be sent a confirmation when each recipe is received. If you don't get a reply please contact or let me know in the RSC #15 Questions & Answers thread: http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=324939 To help with volume in transferring recipes at the end of the submission period, only one recipe per day per chef will be accepted. All recipes received above the 3 recipe limit will automatically be disqualified. The first three submitted will be the ones entered into the contest. Recipes must be submitted by Deadline Date listed to qualify; any recipes received after the deadline will be rejected and the contributor notified by zmail. ~~Quick Checklist~~ Your entry should have all of the following: Your Zaar name: Your Zaar Chef number: Recipe Title: Recipe Intro: optional, but this does help "sell" your recipe Ingredients: No asteriks in this field please. Step by Step Directions: Do not send your entry with a double set of numbered steps! Servings: Prep Time: Cook time: One Course Category: ~~No Changes!~~ Once an entry has been submitted it cannot be edited in any manner. Please check your recipe description, ingredient lists and amounts, and directions carefully before submitting your recipe. This includes spelling and grammatical errors. ALL RECIPES WILL BE POSTED EXACTLY AS SENT! ~~Reviewing~~ By entering you are agreeing to make & review the same number of recipes as you enter in our contests. In this contest that number is up to THREE. You are encouraged to make & test as many recipes as you choose beyond that. Please hold your reviews until the Review Period: March 6-8th 11:59pm Eastern We ask that your reviews are honest, polite and tactful. Reviews should not be intended to be hurtful. To review contest recipes as fairly as possible, we request that you make and taste each recipe that you review. ~~Remind Me~~ If you would like to be reminded to post your reviews during the correct weekend, please sign up for a zmail reminder at: http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?p=4924611#4924611 ~~Photos~~ Photos of recipes should NOT be submitted for any contest recipe until the contest is over and the winners have been named. If a photo is submitted early, the recipe may be disqualified or the recipe by the member posting the early photo/ review may have their recipe disqualified. Photographs may be submitted, by any member, AFTER the winners are announced. ~~Honor Code~~ Honor Code: Members are not to share their recipe creations with other members. Discussion of submissions and/or reviews is strictly prohibited. Reviews used for the purpose of this contest may only be posted by ONE member of each household. ~~Fine Print~~ 1. All recipes will be reviewed to verify the use of FIVE of the official ingredients. 2. All recipe submissions will be hidden from view until after the deadline. 3. The recipe poster's name and all reviews will be hidden from view until after the End Date, so as not to bias any reviewers. Any attempt to identify or promote a recipe by the submitter OR ANYONE will result in disqualification, and a possible warning on their account at Recipezaar. Recipes should only be saved into your MAIN or another PRIVATE cookbook so as not to unfairly promote a recipe. All participants are on their honor to not share their recipe titles with anyone else. Doing so will result in disqualification. 4. Once the Contest is over, all recipes will be returned to the original chef's account. 5. Recipezaar runs on Eastern Time so all dates are for 11:59pm Recipezaar time unless otherwise specified. 6. Any number of recipes above 3 will be disqualified. 7.
